We should just trade for Aron Baynes.  This deal works according to the infallible trade machine:

saltlover, you are a good person for this question. I thought that, often, players who were traded away could not be traded back for one year after the initial trade? Is that a case where it's "if the receiving team is over the cap" or is it something else?

I'd love to have Baynes back, obviously for the right price.

You are correct that players cannot be traded back within one year of the initial trade.

Only way we could acquire Baynes is if he's traded to another team and waived. I absolutely have no idea why that trade machine says he can be traded.

I wish the Suns start playing poorly, baynes gets traded and waived and if that happens I believe we are frontrunners for his services.

Just period, he cannot. Or if the receiving team is over the cap?

I’d say ESPN is wrong, but they’re the professionals so that can’t be it...

I wouldn’t count on Baynes being traded and then waived.  Even if the Suns slow down (which I expect), his salary is very tradaable to a contending team, so I think if he’s traded he’ll just be kept by his new team.

A man can dream though. I know it isn't likely but I sure wish it was! Plays good D, improved his game, good lockerroom presence. Only negative I can say about his stay here are the injuries.

There may be some corner case exception that I don’t know because it’s unlikely to practically arise (e.g. a player is traded, waived, signed (not claimed) by a third team, and that third team then trades him after waiting the requisite 90 days), but for practical purposes, Baynes cannot be traded back to the Celtics.

Sorry for the confusion — I was trying to demonstrate an obvious flaw with Trade Machine.

You’re right.  I’m moving on from this.

A few others that I don't think have been brought up.

Ekpe Udoh had a great season last year in a backup role with the Jazz. Maybe he could provide some depth.

Khem Birch might run out of minutes quick with Vucevic, Bamba, Aminu, Gordon, and Isaac ahead of him. He was highly effective last year.

DJ Wilson has fallen out of the rotation in Milwaukee. This has the added bonus of Wilson having an axe to grind against the Bucks if he is traded away. He is a legit 6'10'' with a 7'3'' wingspan. His defensive stats in limited time have been pretty good.

Bjelica is a very intelligent player that works hard, but has definitely defensive deficiencies. Still, he would immediately be the best shooter on the Cs, which helps open the lane for our drivers.

What about our old friend Kelly Olynyk? His numbers and minutes are down a bit. With Bam playing well and Leonard (surprisingly) finally be effective, as well as the Heat playing Jones, Winslow, and Butler playing the 4, and Johnson coming back soon, Olynyk might be falling out of favor. He'd probably be the best all-around big the Cs had (I'm a big Olynyk fan).

For that matter, James Johnson might be a great option. The last two seasons, he's been one of the best defenders on Giannis. The Heat will definitely know this and probably keep him for a potential matchup in the playoffs.

WCS could be another option. If the Warriors blow it up this year and try to get as much draft capital as possible, the Cs could trade for him. He's an athletic guy who has figured out his role pretty well. Still, I'm not convinced he has the basketball IQ to be the answer against guys like Embiid.

Just a few thoughts to add to the list.
